 Trailer Training Galway BE Licence at an affordable price by Comfort Driving School Galway

Did you know that drivers who passed an ordinary car test need to do an additional driving test in order to tow large trailers and gain entitlement to category B+E and all larger vehicles?

A category BE licence is a combination of drawing vehicles in category B and trailer where the MAM (Maximum Authorised Mass) or the gross vehicle weight of the trailer is not greater than 3,500 kg.
